Installing and Activating BOI

Scroll Prev Top Next More

Berlin Orchestra Inspire requires Kontakt Player (or Full) 5.6.8 or higher and can not be used with any previous version.
This is due to Native Instruments only encoding new libraries in the newest version of Kontakt.

General Activation Notes

After downloading and extracting BOI, please note the following about the activation process:

1.It is NOT possible to add BOI to Kontakt in any version prior to 5.6.8. Doing so will very likely make Kontakt crash. This is an issue within Kontakt and is not related to Orchestral Tools in any way

2.You will need to activate BOI within Native Access following the instructions in the relevant section Add Library (Kontakt 5.6.8) in the Installation Guide. You can not use the old Service Center. Please read this section carefully, as the process differs from previous versions of Kontakt

Read the Installation Guide!

The Installation Guide describes the whole process. Please read it!


If you encounter any issues activating BOI, especially if you have (unsuccessfully) tried to add it to Kontakt in an earlier version of Kontakt, please follow the steps below in order:

1) Delete the "Berlin Orchestra Inspire.xml"

There may be a "Berlin Orchestra Inspire.xml" in the following folder, which needs to be deleted.

Mac: /Library/Application Support/Native Instruments/Service Center/
Win: :\Program Files\Common Files\Native Instruments\Service Center\

2) Delete Registry/Preferences entries


In the Windows registry delete:
▪ [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Native Instruments\$ProductName$]
▪ [HKEY_LOCAL_MASCHINE\SOFTWARE\Native Instruments\$ProductName$]

To delete Registry entries, call up the Registry Editor by pressing Win-R, type "regedit" and press Enter.
Make sure to ONLY delete the strings mentioned above, nothing else!
